Re: Canberra Raiders prop Tapine coy on new NRL contract

This has to get done. But.. I reserve the right in 2027 at the final year of the contract to bitch about paying a 33 year old prop $800k. Particularly once he's Bronson Harrisoning all over the place! Now there’s a guy who was overrated.., played about 2 good games before contract time. :lol: :lol:...

Re: Elliott Whitehead

You’ve chosen a very weird hill to die on here.

All of the criticism I’ve ever seen of Bronson revolves around the fact he played awesome football, got a fat contract extension, and then phoned it in from there on.

Literally all of it.

But no one was complaining about that contract when it was signed. He was awesome in the years prior to signing that deal. Awesom...
